I had a credit card debt that was sent to the "Bureau of Collections Recovery Inc. located at 757 corporate Way, EdenPrairie MN, 55344.
Here is what happened......
I spoke to several different people on several different dates at the collection recovery INC.
The debt was for $2175.19.
A verbal agreement was made on the phone for a settlement amount of $1100.00. I asked for a settlement letter and was told I had to pay the $1100.oo first, then the letter would be sent to me.
I paid the amount via debit card.
I was told that in 30 days I would received a settlement letter. I received NO letter. I did not even receive a letter acknowledging my $1100.00 payment.
Instead I got a phone call 30 days later stating that I owe the balance and no settlement was agreed upon.
I was also told my assest would be seized and paycheck garnished.
What kind of low life practice is this?????
I did what I was asked to do and now they are still trying get more money.
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
